~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

The Beast (1975)

AKA: La Bete

Starring: Lisbeth Hummel, Guy Tréjan
Director: Walerian Borowczyk

Two wealthy families arrange a marriage between their son and daughter. The daughter arrives at the estate, which has a legend surrounding it about a roaming beast, to meet the family.

My Take:
This film threw me off a bit. I simply was not expecting to see many of things put in this movie and it's rather hard to shock me. There is a lot of werewolf on human sex complete with phallus and multiple ejaculations. Granted it's all special effects and done in a dream type sequence, but it's really strange. It's very easy to see why the movie has been banned for so long in numerous countries, but it's also the reason film connisuers might want to watch it.
